Videos: Mammoth crowd witness as Buruji Kashamu is buried


Senator Buruju Kashamu’s corpse has been buried at his Ijebu-Igbo country home.

The late lawmaker and political leader was reported to have been interred at around 12:55 pm on Sunday.


Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, who is a friend of the deceased, was among dignitaries who attended the islamic burial rites to bid farewell to his kinsman.

However, sympathisers shunned COVID-19 protocols while they struggled to catch a glimpse of the burial proceedings.


Kashamu died of coronavirus complications in a Lagos hospital on Saturday, at the age of 62.
